As we strive to better understand our world and make the most informed decisions possible, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) allow us to better integrate and analyze our data, collaborate across government, and engage with citizens across our nation, and around the world. With geographic information systems, we are measuring our world continuously, performing spatial analysis in real-time, and creating the understanding to take action every day. Join us, as we explore a world of geographic possibilities; learning from accomplished government and technology leaders who will share ideas and knowledge that lead us all to improved efficiencies, accomplished missions, and success. Walk away inspired and ready to change the world with geography.
